Windows Operating System Version Numbers

15378

Before you deploy any software it is good to know windows operating system version numbers. To determine the version of the operating system that is currently running, you can use version helper functions. Identifying the current operating system is usually not the best way to determine whether a particular operating system feature is present. If you must require a particular operating system, be sure to use it as a minimum supported version, rather than design the test for the one operating system.

There are multiple ways to find the OS version. Here is the link to one of my old post which shows how to get OS version using command line.

The easiest way to determine the operating system version number is using the ver command.

The below table shows the list of windows versions. In the below table if you look carefully at the operating system version number it is made of up Major Version, Minor Version and Build number. I have tried to add all the OS version numbers, if I have missed any, do write in the comments. I will update this table as Microsoft brings in new OS in the market.
